last night. Dean came to my rescue

with three & that kept us going

until rations came up. I hope that

Kenneth's cold did not develop and

that he is very fit & well. I can

imagine that he will get into mischief.

Fancy his picking up a lamp. Still there

seems to be a special providence that

protects little children - anyhow I hope

his enquiries will not lead him 

into trouble. No you didn't tell me

about his not liking your black 

frock. I must try & see that neither 

of you are disappointed after by the 

post girl not bringing a letter. Wish

I could do as Kenneth suggests and

bring a letter soon. I often wonder

how he is growing & I expect I shall 

see quite a bit of change in him

when I get home again. It must have

been amusing when he told Grandma

he didn't want her to talk, but wanted

to talk himself. I expect there will

be a reaction but I hope Ma keeps

well & will soon settle down after

the strain. It must be difficult for

her & I am sure the sooner she gets

away for a change the better it will be.
